Chinese carmaker makes double electric car push

China is not just the largest automotive market in the world - it's also become a hotbed for electric car innovation with Dongfeng Motor Group outlining its commitment to the technology with a double header this week.

First it announced that it will team up with South Korean conglomerate LS Group to co-operate on both electric and hybrid cars. Together they will build a strategic partnership to develop components for electric vehicles that will be used in the China market: such as powertrains, energy storage systems, electrical systems and charging systems.

Meanwhile, the company has also taken delivery of its first lithium-ion battery system from Electrovaya Inc.

With Dongfeng planning to introduce an electric vehicle programme, the lithium-ion super polymer 2.0 batteries are expected to offer high energy density cells and a battery management system. The design is flexible and meant to fit both two- and four-door electric vehicles.

Dongfeng has already announced that production of the Fengshen E30 EV (pictured) will begin in 2014.
